Appendix B — SATA devices
This appendix describes how to use the Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM Configuration Utility
to set up and manage SATA RAID volumes.
NOTE:
If only a single HDD is attached, the Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM will not execute.
All associated messages will not be displayed.
The Intel Serial ATA AHCI BIOS always executes when RAID/AHCI is selected for the SATA emulation
mode. This BIOS is only used to support serial attached optical drives. When an HDD is attached, the
AHCI BIOS properly identifies the HDD that is connected to the appropriate SATA port and displays
Device not supported in this configuration. This message is expected and does not indicate a
problem.
